IWSG July 2020

Hello everyone and as always thanks for stopping by. These are the co-hosts for July 2020’s Insecure Writers Support Group brought to you by Jenni Enzor and his team of co-hosts: Beth Camp, Liesbet @ Roaming About, Tyrean Martinson and Sandra Cox.

Be sure to stop by their sites and give them some love for all their hard work! This during what has to be one of the craziest years in recent memory! 

July 1 Question There have been many industry changes in the last decade, so what are some changes you would like to see happen in the next decade? 

I see articles and videos about things like downloading and playing back dreams (fascinating or frightening depending on the individual being tested) and storing our thoughts while we lay in a cryogenic state, perhaps due to a disease waiting for science to discover a cure, only to upload them when science has discovered a way to bring us back. The exponential power of our latent untapped brain power waiting to be discovered could supersede that of technology doubling every 18 months.


 As a writer, I would certainly look at using these super powers for good. But I would also use them for my personal use, and I would love to be able to think words, phrases and sentences and have them appear on my monitor. I mean, how cool would that be!!! I could make changes in an instant and save so much time writing and rewriting a story. 

Of course, I’m sure I would still need my editor. For some unexplained reason I just don’t think tapping into our unused portions of our brains would be perfect. 

With me, the shortfall I’m sure would be that I would still need an editor. 

Question How are you planning to spend the 4th of July and the rest of the summer. I had plans to travel and see family but there are some who are at risk and I may have to put things off indefinitely.
